Our legendary former coach turns 85 today. So much has changed since JoePa celebrated his last birthday, but we can only hope that he is surrounded by family and friends on this special day.
It’s hard enough to save money while at school, but have you ever noticed how you seem to fly through money when you leave for break? It’s not an unusual phenomenon, especially when all of your buddies from home want to get together every single night. Don’t even get me started on the holidays; how could you possibly save money with all of those presents you have to buy? And your Aunt Cindy never seems to just give you cash on the big day…instead you’re stuck with a pair of pajamas with little penguins on them. With my help, you can see your friends, pretend to be happy with your less-than-mediocre presents, and manage to save a few bucks for your bar tab on syllabus week.

Between sleeping, catching up with friends and family, working, and celebrating the holidays, chances are you’ll be looking for something fun to do over the next few weeks. For that reason, this week, Onward State will look into what’s going on in a city near you (most likely) while you’re home on break. Today, we look at The City of Brotherly Love.
